The Person County Cooperative Extension will be offering an in-person “NC Safe Plates” for all those who work in the food service industry. “NC Safe Plates” will be offered at the Person County Office Building on Tuesday – Friday, March 14 – 17, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. with the exam on Tuesday, March 21, 2023. Participants will receive a certificate required for inspections. The registration fee is $135 and is due by Friday, February 24 along with the registration form.

The course will help food establishments meet the requirement of having at least one supervisor certified as a food protection manager, which is a mandate of the NC Food Code. There will be instruction in personal hygiene, purchasing from reputable suppliers, eliminating cross-contamination, and correct temperatures for storing, preparing, and holding foods. Each year in the United States there are around 5,000 unnecessary deaths that occur from food borne illnesses. Also, there are hundreds of hospitalizations, unnecessary medical expenses, lost time from work, loss of revenue from the business, customer mistrust, and the list goes on.
